Ohio man's body found along Pennsylvania Turnpike
<![CDATA[SOMERSET, Pa. (AP) -- A body found near a construction pond along the Pennsylvania Turnpike is that of an Ohio man who died from being shot. State police and the Somerset County coroner have been trying to determine whether 33-year-old Antwan Dash, of Akron, Ohio, was shot by himself or someone else. His body was found about 7 a.m. Tuesday along the eastbound lanes near mile marker 108. That would be about two miles west of the Somerset exit. Dash's vehicle was found parked nearby. A contractor's employee found the body, which would not have been visible from the toll road. The contractor is building a bridge as part of a turnpike widening project in the area. The sediment pond was created by the workers.
